“Her versatility across the backline gives us a number of options of how we can set-up and creates great competition amongst the backs.

“Kayleigh brings a high work rate to the defensive line, a sublime core skillset, as well as much valued experience having competed at the Commonwealth Games.”

“I’m really looking forward to joining Bristol Bears Women for the upcoming season. It’s a well-established club both on and off the field with the fantastic work they do on the pitch and within the community”, said Powell.

“The Bears have a great squad and I believe it will be a great challenge for me at this stage in my career as I try and push myself to the next level.

“The combination of coaching from Kim and her team coupled with playing against top quality opposition week in, week out will really benefit me and hopefully I can add value to the team and perform well in a Bristol Bears jersey.”
